on the others i think it's a war. medal was approved by congress, not a dime ever voted for it. had george w. bush had done that i think we would have heard cries of impeachment. we are part of our immigration laws, and i was suspended by the president when the year before he said he couldn't do that. there's just a variety of issues like that when he's gone outside. we have to tension with our system, struggles between congress and the president, but this one is very cities. you will see it continue. but there will be legal cases. all the way back. i'm going to try to bounce around all of it. it begin, we will get to everybody. >> i was a little concerned to find that you are not in support of making the continuing resolution contingent upon removing what optional spending you can remove on obamacare. i feel very strongly. i think the other speaker i speak from my point of view -- applaud not this is not theoretical because two weeks ago today my husband and i paid in cash for our son to have major surgery. a four-hour procedure. that's the price i pay for the liberty of my children. i'm se
expansion. under george w. bush we expanded the prescription drug part d. i opposed that. i opposed it because there was not a governmental plan available. i thought we should -- there was not universal pricing which i thought would bring down the costs dramatically. i think i'm right about both of those points, by the way. but the day after it was passed, i worked to make sure it was implemented as best we could. we worked together to make it work. and we're not seeing that on the affordable care act. we're seeing almost just a political isolation of this issue just calling it politics rather than trying to make it work the best that you can and seeking changes that you think should be changed. so i'm hoping that we can get to that point, and we can get the resources necessary to make sure this law is implemented fairly. because you're absolutely correct. it's not going to be a one-year implementation of the personal mandate. it's going to take a long time. it's going to take years. we know that. we also don't know what type of group will enroll in the first year. it might surprise
much evidence of that when you carry group 79% to 21%. it was better than george w. bush in 2004. white catholics, 18% of the electorate. they voted 59% to 40% for mitt romney. that is probably the best vote in percentage terms for a republican nominee among white catholics in history. with theama contraception mandate there with people being forced to pay for insurance to cover contraceptive procedures because these are so -- the fees are so onerous for women day out to something less than two pumpkin lattes at starbucks per month, that triggered some backlash. gain votes with one group and you can lose them with another. both parties face a problem with significant segment of the electorate. and right away, white catholics and white evangelical protestants, which are not overlapping constituencies, or 44% of the electorate. if i was a strategist for the democratic party, of which said that you havesay some problems there. you have some groups you will not be able to win. some analysts have said, well, republicans need to get over 60% , using the of whites category that we use today to

believe the economy was so messed up by george bush that obama struggled mightily to overcome this horrible situation he inherited. the second reason is most americans believe republicans only care about rich people. and those are branding problems that the republican party has to to overcome. and it's hard to overcome it because you've got three obstacles; academia, hollywood and our major media, all of which are overwhelmingly liberal. when you say something, it's got to be interpreted through the filter of those three entities, and often it's been distorted. >> host: larry elder is our guest, this is booktv on c-span2 live from the los angeles times festival of books, campus of usc. mike's in fort worth, texas. hi, mike. >> caller: how's it going, larry? my -- pretty good. i'm a african-american democrat, but i agree with you one of the big problems in the african-american community is lack of fathers in the house. but i think, larry, when you say that, you kind of come off kind of harsh on black people. now, what's the reason behind the lack of a lot of fathers being in th
to speak at the bush institute i leapt at the opportunities a way of such an admirer of george w. bush. you stole my fender a little bit talking about 4% growth but i don't think we can accomplish i think it is a precondition but the only way that i have a problem with that is that we could do that of the fourth year of the non recovery there is no reason it cannot be growing much faster than it is even a five or six or 7 percent growth this is interesting if you look at the period of a quarter-century unprecedented growth that was a period when we have the average of almost 4 percent growth over the same time period unprecedented immigration well over 12 lead americans and people say that it would depress rage wages but the actual evidence shows the opposite the biggest boom was also the biggest immigration that doesn't mean they caused it but it is substantial evidence. the second point is with respect to states, at the "wall street journal" the least 10 it editorials comparing california and texas, it is good. >> those moving from california to texas. so what you have seen over the last
of the george to be bush said ministration but as we described in our book fees stemming from a much deeper source that cut through both democratic and republican did frustration than something we describe as the united states each essentially giving in to the post cold war temptation to act as an imperial power in the middle east and this turned in policy with little regard for the reality on the ground in the middle east's proven deeply damaging to american interests, as a candidate in 2008 now president obama then seems to understand and he talked about courageously during the campaign and pledged not just to draw american troops from iraq but also the american mindset that had gotten into the strategic mistake to invade iraq in the first place and pledged to change the middle east policy but instead the obama administration has pursued policies as the predecessors the same policies that did such damage to our strategic position and as a result the obama administration today is not just providing a stalled middle east peace process but the demise of the true state solution to the palesti
in the united states and certainly more than mayor sanchez and much more popular than george bush. but they are in these and untenable situation with the success is the unfavorable referendum because yet they have certain personality qualities and visions that make them suspect by their peers like the 19th century western that we see whether high noon, ethan edwards magnificence 73 bring the people in and they are suspect figures. we want them to get rid of the cattlemen but it is better than everyone or that they take the badge so whether real like it or not it did not and very well with themistocles ends with suicide 20 years later and tell sorus ended up the popular tradition ended up as dave we were trying to defend what he did but was not popular. for rescue ridgway was not made chairman of the joint chiefs and eisenhower he said. >> host: did not take thistles. was not ridgway but van fleet w. was not in the theater but he got involved with material controversy so finished the manuscript the petite blonde as she did have problems but these are controversial a and after the s
two terms. george w. bush who i have a lot of criticisms of him and mike book was definitely somewhat influenced by the conservative movement and had some movement conservatives in his administration as his father did that he was not really himself a philosophically small government kind of guy. i agree that a big problem in terms of actual conservatives winning the republican nomination is the fact that a lot of the conservatives who qualified or who are seen as qualified to be president, from rural districts or they come from southern states and it becomes more of her cultural battle in the minds of a lot of people. i think the other problem is that frequently what ends up happening is the conservative candidate who appeals most to grassroots conservatives in the republican primaries and hear him talking about presidential primaries tends to be the candidate the conservative who doesn't have the organization of the money to go the distance in a fight with the establishment candidate in the conservative who is maybe a bit that are prepared and has more money and better organization t
terrorism was partially because george w. bush hated in the muslim world. despite his speech in cairo, despite his efforts to close guantanamo, despite his elimination of the use of the term war on terror, al qaeda continues to hate america. and even as i speak to you here today, they continue to plan attacks against america here and around the world. the president's not alone in failing to confront these threats. i'm afraid because of the success we've had in preventing another attack on the scale of 9/11, some of our leaders in both parties have been lulled into a sense of false security. i certainly support the privacy rights and expectations of all americans. but my colleagues, i also know for a fact that the surveillance programs that our government used have prevented attacks and saved american lives. i think it's a mistake to dismiss privacy concerns as crazy. after all, we have a government whose tax collecting agency targeted americans because of their political views. but it's also a mistake to exaggerate them. after all, if a known terrorist is e-mailing or calling someone
